This has been one of the best all-inclusive resorts I have stayed. The service lives up to the claims! From the moment we started the check-in we were treated like valued guests and every one of our needs were met.
The rooms are modern and clean. The restaurants are excellent (the only issue was that reservations to fill up -- so get your reservations in early).
The pool area does fill up during the peak hours, but we chose a spot that didn't seem overly crowded (and wait staff does bring drinks on a regular basis!). The beach area was crowded witha younger crowd, so we didn't spend too much time at the beach. Some of the pools do get shaded in the afternoon, but if you choose the right spots you don't need to move for sun. It appeared that many enjoyed the afternoon shade of the "swim-up pool bar".
The RIU Land childrens center was excellent and the children we traveled with enjoyed spending time there!
The evening entertainment was just ok (and crowded), but we did attend every night for a few cocktails before bed!
We had an excellent experience and will be booking a trip at RIU Penninsula again!
